WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Wake Forest says forward Sunday Okeke will miss the rest of the season after tearing his Achilles tendon.
Team spokesman Steve Kirkland said Tuesday that Okeke hurt the tendon in his right foot during a victory over Columbia on Sunday and had surgery the following day.
Okeke is the second Wake Forest forward in three weeks to suffer a season-ending Achilles tendon injury. Freshman Tariq Ingraham hurt the tendon in his left foot during an October practice.
Coach Danny Manning says Okeke's injury is "heartbreaking."
Okeke had three rebounds while playing three minutes against Columbia before he was hurt.
